HOW do you know that ‘all just appearing awareness’?
It's a concept, "It's just appearing" would be more accurate.
HOW do you know that there is a subject, that is aware?
That was in thought, there is the the arising of sensation.
What is the experiential proof for this?
There is none, it's just a concept in thought.
Where does this information coming from? Is it coming from looking at the raw, unadulterated experience? Or is it a learned concept?
It's a concept.
HOW do you know that things go in and out of awareness?
This arise and pass away in direct experience, no concept of awareness is needed.
Is this something that actually can be observed, or is it just an uninvestigated assumption?
It's just an assumption.
Is it possible that you’ve adopted the idea of awareness (from others) and now you are trying to justify it with reasoning?
When you look for an awareness and it SEEMS that things coming in out of awareness, is there a visual thought of showing some sort of space or blackness or wasteness and things appearing in that image of space/wasteness?
When looking for this awareness thoughts/imagining do occur, so yes.
Can you find an actual, real, stand-alone awareness outside of verbal and visual thoughts
No, every time I look a subtle thought or imagining shows ups. Can't find any awareness outside of it.
Does the word ‘awareness’ point to anything in reality?
Awareness is just a concept, I can't find it in direct experience.
Or awareness exist only as a concept, as a thought-content?
It's a concept.
Is there a thought + awareness?
Just the thought arising/passing away.
Is there a dividing line between a thought and awareness?
No I can't find this "awareness" it's just a thought coming and going.
Where does the thought end and the awareness starts?
A thought just happens until it doesn't, no need to add anything else on top of it.
If you say that there is no dividing line and no ends, then HOW do you know that 2 things arising together, a thought + an awareness?
Is this really the case?
No, this is not the case. There's just the direct experience, no need for more.
If awareness cannot be perceived in any way, then HOW do you know that there are two things arising?
It was just a learned concept/assumption.
But HOW do you know this?
I don't it was an assumption. There is just the arising and passing away, not something along with it. Just the direct experience.
At the beginning of you post you said that things arise IN awareness, but now you say that awareness appears simultaneously with the 5 senses. Which one is true? The first, second, none?
The "awareness" isn't needed in the equation.
Pay attention to a sensation of the hands.
The sensation is there.
Is the sensation INSIDE an awareness?
There is just a sensation, no inside anything. I closed my eyes and did this and sensations were the only real thing about the hand. An image popped up, but it's not the direct experience. Only this that was real was the sensation of my finger tips rubbing my table, don't even need the rest of the hand.
If you say there is none of those, then HOW do you know that this is the case?
By looking at direct experience.
How do you recognise awareness if you cannot see it, cannot touch it, cannot smell it, cannot taste it, cannot hear it?
You can only thing of it, and imagine of it, but not actually experience of it, can’t you?
And if you say that the sensation is arise WITH awareness, then my questions the same.
Do you see two things arising?
No, just the immediate experience.
How do you recognize the ‘awareness’ part if it cannot be seen, touched, felt, smelt, tasted, heard? How exactly?
I can't find it, it's just imagined.
Do you see that you are talking about a SEEMING thing? A seeming thing is not a real thing.
So now, you are talking about a third option.Which one is true? First, second, third, or none?
None, there' s nothing there except the direct experience, no need to make it more complicated with concepts.
Do you see that you are trying to justify the notion of awareness by thinking and speculating?
Yeah, it's pretty clear now.
Listen to the sounds.
HOW do you know that this sound IS awareness?
I don't it's just being heard.
The sound is there, it’s happening, but WHERE is awareness?
It's not found.
Is there an ACTUAL awareness, or just the notion/assumption/thought of awareness?
It's just an assumption.
